As you see there is a lot of movement inside the Mirrorless world. I am curious to see what Canon will do but I bet they will “join” in mid-late 2012 only. The Sony NEX-7 could be a “bomb” with the new 24 Megapixel sensor but I don’t think they are going to make it right with the body-usability design. The big news here is Fuji. If they join the m43 system than it will be ahrd for everyone else (including Sony and Canon) to compete against them!!!
Click here to read it: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicdmcg3/. The camera earns a rating of 75% and gets the SIlver Award: “The G3 is a camera that is easy to use and produces excellent image quality – a step up from previous G-series models. Its overall handling and touchscreen interface have distinct appeal for users moving up from a point-and-shoot. Yet it offers the manual controls and custom parameters that enthusiasts in the market for a smaller, lighter body would expect.”
The camera is now avaialable in Europe (and slowly in US too). Click on the shop names to see if it is in Stock: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.
One more private thing: Sorry If I posted that news 10 hours to late but I am on vacation on an isolated place. And yesterday the whole phone network didn’t work in that place. So connection is coming and going and it will be like that until July 26th. Hope you can have a bit of patience If I am not so fast in answering your mails or posting news.
Rob sent me following text: “Hello! Received a metabones c-mount to m4/3 adapter today. The fit was so tight it almost got stuck on my GH-1. Looks like others have had similar experiences: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/archive/index.php/t-249698.html. Since this adapter might damage any m4/3 camera it is fitted to, it would be cool if you could issue a warning on 43Rumors. Would have saved me some trouble…..I was able to file off some metal, and now have a ok fit. But this really should not be neccesary on what is a dapter marketed as “professional”. Will definitely go for a chep China adapter again next time.”
